$ emerge =net-mail/mailwrapper-0.2.1-r1 -pv

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "=net-mail/mailwrapper-0.2.1-r1" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- net-mail/mailwrapper-0.2.1-r1 (masked by: package.mask)
# Fernando J. Pereda <> (25 April 2005)
# mask these until the new mailwrapper/mailer-config scheme is ready
# it is secure to unmask them to test

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

postfix-2.2.8 isn't for mailwrapper-0.2.1-r1. If you want to use mailwrapper-0.2.1-r1, then use postfix-2.2.8-r1 (p.masked)

Thanks, I have not seen the maske version of postfix. Closing.
